Early Years
Pre-K to KG2

Creating a solid foundation for future learning

Our Early Years Programme for children aged 3-6 years is designed to encourage students to be curious, creative, collaborative, kind and considerate. Students learn by connecting prior and new knowledge in meaningful ways in a stimulating and safe learning environment, whilst building foundational literacy skills.


The learning experience that your child will have with us is driven by the pedagogy, beliefs and values of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) which is a leading curriculum framework for international primary education.

Programme Overview

Personalised attention and learning

We recognise and value that your child’s emotional and social well-being is shaped from a very early age. We also know that your child is most likely to become a confident learner when placed in an environment in which they feel secure to express themselves without fear of judgement.

We create this safe space in our Kindergarten classes (Pre-K – KG2) by limiting class sizes to a maximum of 16 children. This allows the full-time teacher and teaching partner in your child’s class to get to know your child, and tailor activities to their individual needs specially designed to bring out the best in them.

Purposeful play

The Early Learning programme focuses on purposeful play, active learning, creativity, and critical thinking. We encourage children to actively explore the world, developing individual and shared inquiries. Our goal is to create a dynamic and joyful community of young learners who have the strong educational foundations they need in order to continue their journey through to Primary School.

Inquiry-based learning

Our learners are engaged in a stimulating, inquiry-based curriculum. We create learning experiences that are meaningful, inclusive and multi-sensory, to raise your child’s natural curiosity and interests through several engaging Units of Inquiry (UoI). Inquiry is the process initiated by the learner or the teacher which moves the learner from his or her current level of understanding to a new and deeper level of understanding.

Introduction to STEM

Students are provided with opportunities to develop their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), discover the world around them, see patterns and connections between different ideas and subjects, and develop problem-solving and analytical skills.

Stimulating and safe learning environment

The Early Years building is equipped with facilities and resources that were designed with younger children in mind. Our educational spaces are created to provide students with a vibrant and engaging learning environment in which they can flourish. We also encourage our younger students to experience ‘big school’ when they are comfortable. This can be done through walk-arounds and by participating in whole-school community activities.
